The Stanley Humphries Secondary (SHSS) senior girls field hockey team lost its West Kootenay final game Wednesday at Pass Creek Park to a very strong Rossland squad.

This weekend, SHSS travelled to a tournament in Kelowna where they finished sixth out of ten teams.

“It was great experience for the girls playing on an artificial turf surface,” said team sponsor/manager Fiona Martin. “Everyone showed great improvement in their abilities.”

The Rockers lost to powerhouse Collingwood, beat Penticton 2-1, tied OK (Okanagan) Mission 0-0, and lost to South Kamloops 2-0 in pool play. The team played OK Mission for a second time in the final round and lost 1-0 despite dominating the play.

“Their great goalkeeper just kept saving shot after shot. We ended up sixth. Considering our inexperience and the age of our players, this was a very respectable result.”

SHSS will travel to Kelowna this week for the wild card game against Okanagan’s second place team. The winner of that game will give them a berth at the AA Provincials in Burnaby from November 1-5. Rossland has already qualified after beating SHSS last week.
